      Interrogate the wiki

      Dreamwidth's wiki is a work in constant progress, and many sections are out of date or badly incomplete in ways that may not be obvious to seasoned contributors. When looking through the wiki, add what you can, and bring things that aren't obvious or are out of date to other contributors who may know it.

        Discuss documentation, testing, webmastering, and/or publicity.

        Include URLs if relevant (we'll automatically linkify them).

      • Tip:

        Many projects have good small tasks that can teach newcomers how the project works. Now's your chance to share one of them!

        Include URLs if relevant (we'll automatically linkify them).

      • Example:

        Someone could improve the photo upload dialog box so that it lets you resize the photo before sending it to the web.

        Bug 392 about printing was filed five years ago, and I don't even know if printing still works.
